Like many songs conceived and written by the artist, “What Are You Waiting For?” is basically me talking to me, saying “C’MON girl, let’s DO this thing!” Also like so many artists, I have toiled away many years in the shadows of obscurity, just doing what I love as a sideline to my “money gig”, hoping for a day when I might have the right combination of guts and good fortune to make that leap into a wider arena. But always, above all, we do it for the love, and for the desire to share some idea that moves or inspires us, in the hopes that it will do the same for someone else.

Lyrics

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? / Susan B. Shann / © 2006

I see the way your eyes light up
When you talk about what could be
Tell me, have you got the guts
To make it a reality?
Only you can face that fear of falling
Listen, you can hear it calling
A whole new world is just outside the door

What are you waiting for? This is your life
Come on, take a chance – don’t let it pass you by
What are you waiting for?

You nod your head, you say I’m right
But nothing’s really changed
And I wonder if somewhere deep inside
You want it that way
I suppose it’s your decision
But you can’t deny a heart that’s wishing
To reach out and try for something more

What are you waiting for? This is your life
Come on, take a chance – don’t let it pass you by
What are you waiting for?

Like a shooting star, these moments slip away
Why put off ‘til tomorrow what you’re dreaming of today…

What are you waiting for? This is your life
Come on, take a chance – don’t let it pass you by
What are you waiting for? This is your life
Come on, take a chance – don’t let it pass you by
What are you waiting for?
